Chocolate Avocado Pudding with Cacao Nibs & Raspberries

Chocolate Avocado Pudding with Cacao Nibs & Raspberries

Last week I shared this recipe for Cauliflower Gruyere & Thyme Gratin that is perfect for those nights when you just want cheese for dinner. Well, this chocolate avocado puddings is the sweet-tooth breakfast version of that same feeling: for days when you just want chocolate for breakfast. 

This recipe is one of my favorites from Foraged Breakfast, my eCookbook, which you should definitely go check out if you like breakfast. Not only does avocado chocolate pudding come together in minutes, it's extraordinarily creamy, and pairs perfectly with fresh berries! Where as normal pudding might leave me in a sugar coma, I can eat this chocolate pudding for breakfast and feel just fine until lunch. So, basically, everyone wins. 

Chocolate Avocado Pudding with Cacao Nibs & Raspberries

There are a lot of ways you can deck out your chocolate avocado pudding, though this recipe calls for raspberries and cacao nibs. Other delicious options would be toasted hazelnuts, whipped coconut milk, strawberries, or even a paleo blender brownie 😍 

If you give it a shot, share a picture! I'd love to see what you come up with. Remember to tag @ForagedDish

Grain-Free Banana Nut Waffles

Grain-Free Banana Nut Waffles

I'm sharing another recipe from Foraged Breakfast today! Wonder what the heck I'm talking about? Go read about my first eCookbook, and then come back for this grain-free banana nut waffle recipe. 

When you descend the ski hill at Crested Butte in Colorado, the smell of vanilla, butter and maple syrup wafts in your face. It gets stronger the closer you get to the bottom. As the hill tappers off and your skis slow, you find yourself standing in front of a small shack serving Belgian Waffles. They are steaming even as they get plated, causing swirls of butter and maple syrup to take over your mind. Talk about a solid business plan! Serving hot waffles to hungry traveling skiers who just want something warm--now that's a jackpot. 

Grain-Free Banana Nut Waffles

Admitting that I've never made a Belgian Waffle makes me feel like a fraud, but it doesn't mean I can't smell (or taste) a good waffle when I come across it. One whiff of those ski hut waffles has the ability to set me off on a waffle-craving craze for weeks. 

These banana nut waffles have a similar effect, filling the house with the sweet smell of maple syrup, butter, and vanilla. Toasted pecans only add to this experience. The difference is, they are made with 100% wholesome ingredients (because you know that's how I like it!). Read: almond flour, bananas, cinnamon, and pecans.

Grain-Free Banana Nut Waffles

Just between you and I, the batter for these waffles is made in the blender (!!!) which means it's ready in, like, 3 minutes flat. So even though they look fancy, you'll be head-deep in banana nut waffle, maple swirls, and melting butter in no time. Your waffle cravings can't really wait any longer, can they?!

Broccoli & Pepper Jack Frittata

Broccoli & Pepper Jack Frittata

Frittatas are the answer. As long as you have eggs, frittatas will solve your problems. All you have to do is trust in the way of the frittata.

When I want to feed a crowd, I make a frittata. When I want to use up all of the almost-at-the-end-of-their-life veggies in the fridge, I make a frittata. When I am feeling extra organized and want to make a breakfast we can eat all week, I make a frittata. 

Heck, when the fridge is looking really bleak and I have to get dinner on the table, what is always there as a fall back? Good old frittata. 

Broccoli & Pepper Jack Frittata

That's why it's no surprise that three frittata recipes ended up in my first eBook, Foraged Breakfast (which you can get here!!!), this being one of them. I make a frittata at least once a week, because you really can just put whatever you have on hand in a pan and fill in the cracks with egg. 

This particular frittata calls for broccoli, a bit of bell pepper, potatoes, and pepper jack cheese (plenty of pepper jack!). It's simple, but it's killer. It's the kind of frittata I would serve to guests (I use fresh veggies for the guests, of course ... not those wilting veggies I mentioned earlier, of course! 😝) 

And you know me, impatient as always: frittata comes together quickly, too!
